Celebrities speak out on Hollywood's gender pay gap

It's no secret that women in Hollywood are upset with an alleged gender pay gap. Over the past year, dozens have spoken out about how sexism has impacted them, including Emma Stone who recently revealed that in order to receive equal pay, her male co-stars have offered to take pay cuts.

“In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them," the Oscar-winning actress told OUT magazine. "And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair, so that’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily—that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, ‘That’s what’s fair.’

Here are some other powerful quotes about the issue from some of the world's most famous female faces.
